Viewpoint: Author is against Wisconsin wolf hunt
It should comes as no surprise to anyone with an IQ level above 89 that the wolf kill zones as prescribed by the would-be geniuses of the DNR have been prematurely “filled.” After all, we have already historically proved that humans can eliminate wolves and other predators in the past, and we continue to indulge such a privilege and even a “right” in the blood-lust present.
Consider the logic: We have to kill wolves so we can go out and kill deer. The tourist industry needs dead wolves to fill restaurants and motels. Children need to have wolves killed to make the woods safe. And on it goes. Little Red Riding Hood is a true story.
Think, too, of the child who, now, cannot go home with the fond memory of having seen a wolf in the wilds of beautiful northern Wisconsin thanks to the implementation of: traps, poison, snares, food-baits, bullets-all sanctioned by omniscent “authorities’ who set kill ratios from posh desk settings. Before any humans showed up in North America, some-how Nature (without the benefit of the DNR) was perfectly able to regulate itself sans assistance from human”kind.”
A quote from C.S. Lewis comes to mind: “Let us fervently hope that human beings never be able to escape the bonds fo this planet, lest they infect elsewhere their manifold iniquities.”
This motto should appear in every DNR office prominently and printed as well on Wolf Hunting Licenses. Enough blood lust is never enough.
